The authorities of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR) did not receive proposals for a truce from Azerbaijan. This was stated on October 3 by the head of the NKR Foreign Ministry Masis Mayilyan.

“We are confident that the international recognition of the Artsakh Republic can serve as a lever for establishing peace in the region. As for the temporary truce, we have not received such a proposal, “RIA Novosti quotes him.

Earlier that day, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that peace talks on Nagorno-Karabakh are possible only if the hostilities are suspended by Azerbaijan.

In turn, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev noted that Baku has never refused negotiations on Karabakh. According to the Azerbaijani leader, he has personally been involved in this process since 2003 and in communication with the previous leaders of Armenia, he managed to achieve tangible results, but the current authorities nullified these achievements. He personally laid responsibility for the current situation on Pashinyan and his government.

Another aggravation of the situation in the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic occurred on September 27 this year. Armenia and Azerbaijan blamed each other for shelling and killed among the military and civilians.

Armenia has repeatedly accused Turkey of participating in the battles on the side of Azerbaijan. Ankara and Baku deny this information, while the Turkish authorities expressed their readiness to provide assistance to the Azerbaijani side upon request.

Russia, France, the United States and the UN called on the parties to a ceasefire and a peaceful settlement of the conflict.
